“[The Atheist Community of Jonesboro] was formed because Northeast Arkansas non-theists have no representation in the area, and no forum through which to socialize, to network and to organize,” Joseph Langston, ACJ president, wrote in an e-mail. “…We aren’t against the religious, we are pro non-theist. Our goal is to find those non-theists in [Northeastern Arkansas] and let them know we’re here for them to serve their social, intellectual and humanitarian needs.”
“Our group isn’t anti-theistic; we would no more wish to abolish religion in America than we would wish to abolish the Constitution that grants us all the right to worship as we please,” he said.
It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside every time an atheist group forms in the South!
